I'm back! Took some time off from painting brass and got many 1:1 projects finished.

I also finished the K3 painting. I still need to add the coal load. If I added it today, the Judge wouldn't be able to run it tomorrow. The coal load will be added in the days to come.

Cab interior light installed along with the crew. This time I used a standing Fireman to add a little different look to some of the locos.

Tom,


As usual, simply stunning.  I like the lighted cab interior.  Are you planning to post a video for those of us that cannot see this gem in person?  (Hint, hint.)

Tom, you are a true man of your craft. You take things most wouldn't attempt and put out true artwork. I love seeing these beauties come to life.

Jerry,

Thank you for the compliment. I try to light the cabs when the locos have decent cab interiors.

I didn't get a chance to do a video this past Saturday so hopefully we'll get one this weekend.
